The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday demanded Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi’s resignation over the alleged rape of a 23-year-old woman by an Assistant Sub-Inspector in the Rani Bagh area of the capital.
AAP leader Ashish Khetan argued that crime in New Delhi had gone up because the state’s police personnel were themselves involved in criminal activities.
“If Delhi Police is involved in crime, who will take care of the law? The crime graph has increased in Delhi because the police is now involved in criminal activities,” Khetan told ANI.
“We demand BS Bassi’s resignation over this,” he added.
Meanwhile, the accused ASI has been sent to 14-days’ custody for the alleged rape he has committed. Under the influence of alcohol, the ASI had reportedly raped the woman at gunpoint on Thursday.
The incident has also been caught under CCTV footage. Police have registered a case and are investigating the footage.
